romney, joined by paul ryan, the vice presidential run -- nominee, a joint appearance at 5:40 eastern time, to a clock 44 those of you in the western coast. as the polls show, the rates -- the race has tightened. republican line, cathy. good morning. caller: i was also born at mercy hospital. my concern is about unemployment. i understand they are saying the rates have gone down. i was disappointed because from what i understand, the statistics for unemployment are based on the amount of unemployment checks that are issued and who are being traced, etc. how many people have had their unemployment run out. how the -- how are they being traced ask? i believe they are higher than what is being stated, the unemployment rates. i wish that came out tonight. i do not believe anyone is being traced in any way. they are left there to hang. >> nest is a viewer from greenbelt, maryland. democrat line. welcome to the conversation. caller: how are we doing today? >> fine, thank you. caller: my whole thing is biden put everything on the table. he expressed things he should not have expressed. >> th
attack on the 47% video, governor romney 47% video tape, saying, vice-president biden, you can understand that sometimes things come out of your mouth the wrong way. >> yeah, the vice-president made a bit of news there, saying it was the intelligence committee that told them, according to him, initially, that it was the video that led to the attack on our consulate, in benghazi. i mean, he came out explicitly and said that the intelligence community gave them that information. he went on to talk about the situation there, saying we were not told they wanted more security in benghazi, which we will get to, i am sure with chris wallace, who has been doing fact checking, but there's directly contrary to what we heard from the state department officials themselves, yesterday. paul ryan, for the most part, maintaining his cool, not interrupting joe biden. but joe biden, sort of what we saw mitt romney do the first time around, always getting the last word, making sure that no point went unsubpoenad to, paul ryan looking maybe more respectful, but perhaps in the minds of some, perhaps more weak
, a day after their spirited debate vice president joe biden and republican paul ryan were back on the campaign trail. ryan teamed up with mitt romney while biden hit wisconsin. danielle nottingham brings us more. >> reporter: vice president joe biden continued to play offense in wisconsin friday. >> it's time romney and ryan and the republican congress take a pledge to the middle class people saying we're going to level the playing field. >> reporter: a day after a spirited vice presidential debate. >> with all due respect that's a bunch of marlakey. >> watch out middle class. the tax bill is coming to you. >> reporter: both candidates headed back to the campaign trail. >> reporter: congressman, how you feeling about last night? >> i feel great. >> reporter: paul ryan stopped for breakfast with his family before teaming up with mitt romney in ohio. romney used an earlier virginia rally to praise his running mate's debate performance. >> there was one person on stage last night who was thoughtful and respectful, steady and poised. >> reporter: the obama campaign said the v
spoke. so, first, here is how they timed out overall. vice president biden on the left in blue. speaking for 41:32 tonight. that's about 1:20 longer than congressman ryan did. bear in mind, last week, president obama spoke considerably locker than mitt romney, didn't do him much good. the top three issues of the night. number one for joe biden, the economy at just over 6:00. number one for ryan, budget and taxes at almost 7:00. ryan, budget and taxes, number two issue, ryan, the economy. mirror image of biden. vice president spent third most time talking about the problems in the arab world for the congressman from wisconsin. number three, entitlements, such as medicare, social security. that's our team of timers actually scored it. unlike the last debate, what was also striking, how similar two candidates were to the time they devoted to key issues, not because they agreed, instead because for every punch, an equally sharp counterpunch. some examples, each different almost completely. but at times, around 5:00 each were nearly identical. same on foreign policy side on iran, again, disag
, is no difference between the president and governor romney. >> stylistic points of debate, we heard vice president biden interrupting congressman ryan. calling him in friend. did you prepare for that? >> i watched a lot of biden debate tape over the years. i never seen him perform quite like he did tonight. i'll leave it to others to judge whether it was appropriate for the office of vice president. the contrast was striking on substance, where congressman ryan, laid out a plan, governor romney wanted to pursue the next four years. laid out what has happened over the last four years, the president and vice president tonight couldn't articulate what happened, no really explanation. no rationale for the next four years, so on content, a real choice between ryan and biden, and on demeanor, again, was struck by the contrast in demeanor. >> thank you very much. appreciate your time. wolf, i've been talking to several republicans tonight in this room and feel like this was essentially a draw. i haven't heard a whole lot of people saying to me private that will paul ryan won the debate outright. but in t
of explaining why governor romney will turn around the economy and i thought the vice president was a lot of the time was rude and, you know, when they prep you for debates andrea, they always teach you or they warn you, you got to be respectful of the format and audience because if you're not people don't like it and then they turn off what you're saying. they don't hear the substance of it. i thought the vice president dialed it down a little in the second half but the first half of the debate he was over the top. >> there were a couple points where paul ryan had to defend his own position where they differ with mitt romney's. one in particular was abortion. let's watch. >> the policy of a romney administration will be to oppose abortion with the exceptions for rape, incest and life of the mother. >> well, i guess he accept govern's romney's position now because in the past he has argued there was rape and forcible rape. >> we tried to play that earlier but had problems with our tape technically in new york. but the point being, that as you know, paul ryan has a very firm position again
governor romney's position on those. i also think that -- >> go ahead. >> avoided mistakes and the vice president didn't. his statements on benghazi as you've been covering andrea, are going to be an ongoing problem for the administration. they really just enhanced the contradictions in the administration's policy. >> there were other issues for paul ryan, though, when it came to medicare and tax policy that have been questioned. what about the differences over medicare, health care? he said that there were no -- that there was no study, no statistics that show increased costs in ryan one in the first medicare proposal which the congressional budget office says is not the case. ryan two is another issue. they were debating ryan one. do you think this is going to be a problem with seniors and the vote in florida and other key states? >> i don't think so. i think the romney ticket is winning on that issue and it's just uncontested that the administration takes money out of medicare, $700 billion to pay for obama care. you know, seniors understand that medicare needs to be reformed and the
a real recovery looks like. we need real reforms for at that real recovery and that's what mitt romney and i are proposing. >> reporter: after several heated exchanges ryan said romney's performance last week is motivating the vice president. >> i know you're under a lot of stress to make up. >> reporter: as for who won it depends who you ask. polls are mixed. in a cbs news poll of uncommitted voters 50% thought the vice president won. 31% sided for ryan and 19% called it a tie. not surprisingly both sides claimed victory. mitt romney's campaign said biden seemed off balance and strange. the president's team said the debate exposed the risk of electing a romney/ryan ticket. the candidate also disagreed over foreign policy. congressman ryan pointing to the death of four americans in libya as the administration weakness on abroad while biden said romney's campaign talks first before they know what the facts are. back to you. >>> that cbs news poll found the overall impressions of both vice presidential candidate improved after the debate. 55% of those asked if bid inis somebody they can
, republican mitt romney pfeiffered away. >> the vice president directly contradicted the sworn testimony of state department officials. he is doubling down on denial. >> state department officials express frustration for more security in libya denied. >> for me, the taliban is on the inside of the building. >> raising questions about whether the vice president was passing blame for the terror attack that killed four americans. >> basically, the buck stops with the state department on security. it doesn't stop at the white house? >> made for television phrasing, ed, but the fact of the matter -- >> state department. president can't deal with basically he doesn't make those assessments? >> when it comes to the number of personnel in place at consulates, and embassies and other diplomatic facilities around the world the decisions are appropriately made at the state department. >> biden pointed the finger at intelligence officials over the confusion whether anti-muslim video sparked the attack. >> that was the assessment. as the intelligence changed their view we made it clear they changed t
. >> this is not what a real recovery looks like. we need real reforms for real over. that's exactly what mitt romney and i are proposing. >> reporter: the romney campaign is praising ryan's performance in last night's vice presidential debate against joe biden. as the two men discussed domestic and foreign policy, the current vice president spent most of the night on offense. >> with all due respect, that's a bunch of malarkey. >> reporter: he interrupted ryan and talked into the camera directly several times. >> folks, use your common sense. who do you trust on that? >> reporter: president obama is proud of his running mate's perform manuals. today he's at the white house preparing for his next debate against mitt romney. in a cbs news poll of uncommitted voters taken right after the debate, 50% thought vice president biden won. >> these guys bet against america all the time. >> reporter: other polls gave ryan the edge. >> this is what politicians do when they don't have a record to run on. try to scare people from voting for you. >> reporter: it remains to be seen if last night's showdown will swa
. this is something the romney campaign likes to talk a lot about. reviews generally believe if this vice president joe biden made a mistake last night it was all he framed the administration's response to attacks on libya. this will be revisited that night. jamie: and even before. bill: each party as you can imagine naming their candidates the winner today. the republicans say ryan maintained the upper hand and withstood the biden barrage. here is kentucky senator rand paul. >> i think the president loses some points at least skaoeul lisleast style list likely looking like a cheshire cat back there. >> did romney compete. >> we have massive unemployment? what is the administration doing, what they are doing is not working, what are they going to do differently? >> the obama campaign is cheering joe biden per performance saying he laid out a clear vision for our future. >> in terms of style, joe biden is joe biden. he's authentic and real and straightforward and says what he thinks and what he means and he spoke from a lifetime of experience. and congressman ryan basically spoke that the cue cards
a romney administration, we will have credibility on this issue. >> vice president biden? >> incredible. look, imagine had we let republican congress work out the sancti sanctions. do you think there's any possibility the entire world would have joined us? russia and china? all of our allies? these are the most crippling sanctions in the history of sanctions, period, period. when governor romney is asked about it, he said we've got to keep these sanctions. are you going to go to war? is that what you want to do now? >> we want to prevent war. >> how are they going to prevent war? they say there's nothing more we should do than what we've already done. number two, with regard to the ability to have the united states to take action militarily, it is not in my per view to talk about classified information, but we feel confident that we can deal a serious blow to the iranians. number two, the iranians are -- the israelis and the united states and the military intelligence communities are the same exact place in terms of how close, how close the iranians are to getting a nuclear weapon. they
romney's 47% remarks during the debate, vice president biden went right after it tonight from the beginning and repeatedly. >> but it shouldn't be surprising for a guy who says 47% of the american people are unwilling to take responsibility for their own lives. friend recently said 30% of the american people are takers. these people are my mom and dad, the people i grew up with, my neighbors. they pay more effective tax than governor romney pays in his federal income tax. they are elderly people who are, in fact, living off social security. they're veterans and people fighting in afghanistan right now who are, quote, not paying any taxes. i've had it up to here with with this notion that 47% of -- it's about time they take some responsibility here. instead of signing pledges to grover norquist not to ask the wealthiest among us not to contribute to bring back the middle class, they should be signing a pledge saying to the middle class, we're going to level the playing field. >> that issue of taxes and which side wants to raise them and which side wants to cut them and on whom,
in the debate with mitt romney, they're both willing to say and do anything to become president and vice president. and they're a little fast and loose with the facts. that's a lesson we've learned. we've been holding their feet to the fire over the last ten days. and we're going to continue to do that. the president included. >> the president says he was a little too polite last time. maybe he'll be less polite this time. here's another little exchange that the vice president had with paul ryan. i'm going to play some of these clips. >> 7.4 million seniors are projected to lose the current medicare advantage coverage they have, that's a $3,200 benefit cut -- >> more people -- >> these are from your own actuaries. >> more people signed up for medicare advantage after the change. >> it's a plan i put together with a prominent democratic senator from oregon -- >> there's not one democrat that endorses it. not one democrat who signed the plan -- >> mr. vice president i know you're under a lot of duress to make up for lost ground, but i think we would be better serv
the vice presidential debate. first, the republicans. in a little bit mitt romney teams up with congressman paul ryan in the swing state of ohio. and you're going to see their rally live right here in "the situation room." already today romney's called his running mate's debate performance thoughtful, respectful, steady and poised. our national political correspondent jim acosta has more now on the republican's post debate spin. >> reporter: wolf, even though paul ryan said he saw it coming, republican strategists i talk to in the post debate spin room said they were not expecting joe biden's repeated interruptions and laugh out loud style. if the vice president's performance could be summed up as lol, the republican response was omg. >> i'm great. >> reporter: at breakfast after his fiery debate with vice president joe biden, paul ryan still had his sunny side up. >> no. it's what i expected. [ laughter ] >> reporter: ryan offered no complaints about biden's aggressive performance. which appeared to be designed to put some sorely needed points on the president's scoreboard, whether it was
to be his vice presidential nominee. do you think that distance between ryan and romney, ed, is the most important thing? most important opening tonight for joe biden? >> well, in your opening you talked about how they're very much the same. washingtonites. but the way they got there is a lot different. ryan's path was one of privilege. joe biden's was one of true middle class. i think tonight's debate is as much about how liberals are going to feel when it's over with, as paralleled to how they felt last week, so let down. i was in ohio. that's all they could talk about. i was in florida. that's all they could talk about. this tonight is about a motion. if democrats want to take away from tonight's debate that they feel a lot better about their case to the american people. and that was the shortcoming of the president last week. there were lies that were flying across the table last week, across the deck that were just coming so fast and furious, i think president obama didn't know which one to go after first. joe biden's in his wheelhouse tonight. he's probably one of the most politica
're going to push for in a romney administration. >> vice president? i have a feeling you have a few things to say here? >> the idea, if you heard, that little thing on 47%, you think he just made a mistake, then i think you're -- i got a bridge to sell you. look, i don't doubt his personal generosity and i understand what it's like. when i was a little younger than the congressman, my wife was in an accident, killed my daughter and my wife and my two sons survived. i have sat in the momehomes of people who have gone through what i went through because the one thing you can give people solace is to know if they know you've been through it, that they can make it. so, i don't doubt his personal commitment to individuals. but you know what? i know he had no commitment to the automobile industry. he just -- he said, let it go bankrupt. period. let it drop out. all this talk -- we saved a million jobs. 200,000 people are working today. and i have never met two guys who are more down on america across the board. we're told everything's going bad -- 5.2 million new jobs, pry v private sector jobs.
due respect, that is malarkey. >> under a romney administer, we will have credibility under this issue. >> vice president biden. >> that's incredible. >> thank goodness we have these sanctions in place. >> oh, god. >> over 100 can criminal investigations have been launched. >> go ahead. >> martha, look -- >> and at one point the vice president seemed to even hold himself back from actually cursing. >> this is a bunch of stuff. >> what does that mean, a bunch of stuff? >> it means it's simply inaccurate. >> it's irish. >> irish call it malarkey. >> ryan, of course, largely avoided taking the bait. he did push back at biden a few times including this little zinger. >> mr. vice president, i know you're under a lot of duress but i think people would be better served if we don't keep interrupting each other. >> the democratic base needed a shot in the arm and biden gave it to them, deploying several attacks that romney failed to use in just one minute of the debate. one minute. auto bailout, his statement that the foreclosure crisis could have run its course and the infamous 47% remark. tak
week. >> i thought joe biden was great to night. i cannot be prouder of him. >> i think the vice president knows that sometimes the words don't come out the right way. [laughter] >> but i always say what i mean. >> the next big debate is next tuesday when president obama and mitt romney will square off for the second round in new york. brandi hitt, abc news, ky. >> vice-president joe biden stirred up debate when he laughed and smiled several times during his face-off with ryan. two to accounts or prompted by this. >> talented mitt romney remains on the campaign trail with a stop in richmond later this morning. >> we have some news that may put a chill on your plans to eat ice cream. >> walmart could end up with a black eye on black friday. years linda bell. >> happy friday. walmart may have more to deal with than long lines at some stores. customers try to grab bargains the day after thanksgiving. unhappy employees are planning rallies, flash mobs, and other public events on walmart on one of the busiest shopping days of the year. workers have been protesting low wages, or work c
